Airport choose sign
« on: April 07, 2014, 10:03:15 PM »
It strikes me that one small thing missing from this pakset is an airport choose sign, which will be very useful on taxiways to direct aircraft to a free gate. It should not be difficult to make the graphics for one - but what should it look like? There is not an easy prototype; perhaps a figure waving batons...? But would this be too small to see?

Would a scaled pushback be out of the question?
Seeing one of these as a graphic to place next to a choose signal, perhaps on a plain tile like the ones you can see in pak128 airports might be nice.

Ahh, in which case, there might be a bug in the Experimental version that I was testing. Do you happen to know where the code for this should be so that I can look into putting this right?
